the san francisco giants are the 2010 world series champions. sergio romo struck out miguel ka berrow to finish off the 4-3 victory in the game last night. before that, it was marco -- scutaro who knocked in the winning run. fred inglis is live. i thought 2010 was a big year but in some ways this sweep was even more satisfying. >> reporter: well, it was satisfying, sal. by the way i'm in warren, ohio -- warren, michigan. warren somewhere. very cold, very windy, just like it was at comerica park in downtown detroit last night. i don't know if weather was a
8:01am
factor but i know that momentum was. think about t they were never trailing until the third inning of yesterday's game. there was so many contributors. how about brandon belt. 0-10 in the world series until he delivers with a big triple to give them the lead for the first time. remember, now, the -- the giants are 10-1 in this postseason when they scored first. 10-1 when they score first. so many different contributors as we said. buster posey, well, he's simply the batting champion in the american lead. he's been relatively quiet, having a decent world series and then he comes back and delivers the go-ahead home run, two-run homer. marco scutaro, who beat out an infield single to get on base,
8:02am
helped give them the lead again. they lost the lead. it was 3-2. they went back and the tigers hit another home run to headache it 3-3 and extend -- to make it 3-3 and extend this game into three innings. perhaps the most dramatic game -- it was cold and misty. this was very tough rain. it should have been snow. but in the 10th inning when marco scutaro delivers his second hit of the game, it was the game-winning rbi. he was just 2 for 12 in the world series. but he came up with two big hits. think about the swen -- think about the swen yun -- about the venezuelan influence we had
8:03am
here. it was very much a -- a world series in which the whole world can celebrate. truly, you talk about a sweep but none of those games -- perhaps game one. it was fairly easy. when up win 2-0, and then 2-0 and then 4-3 in ten innings, there was not a lot of room to exhale, if you will, sal. >> fred, we're out of time but i just want to say that i think bruce bochy gets another -- gets a lot of credit. very, very quick final thought on that. >> well, not only bruce but how about brian sabian? i mean, he made the trade of the year when he got marco scutaro in july of 2011. he was simply the best hitter in the major leagues since i started to wear a giants' uniform. this team is built for the long run.
8:04am
this pitching staff, 7 of the 9 offensive players were not on the team, were not on the 2010 team. but were pretty much the entire pitching staff. except for vogelsong was there. the whole organization, tip of the hat for playing smart, organized and fundamental and winning down the stretch. seven straight in postseason. that's a team record. >> that's ktvu's fred inglis, live in warren, michigan which is right near detroit. thank you, fred and obviously we'll have a lot more coverage and more coverage on last night's victory coming up later. let's go back to dave. 78:04. well, clean -- 8:04. well, cleanup crews were busy cleaning up overnight after some of the giants' fans turned destructive. allie rasmus has more. >> reporter: well, i have to

8:06am
were told to leave the area. we did see officers make several arrests for various reasons. some mold us -- some told us the party out here got out of hand. it's fun in the beginning. >> but the reason i left the chaos is because a friend of mine was hit in the face with a beer can. >> people should not tear up the city so much. why would the giants want to win? why would they want too win if this is what we do -- want to win again if this is what we do to show our appreciation? >> reporter: and that resident was so frustrated, she came out to clean up the mess in front of her apartment building herself. crews spent the overnight hours spent the night cleaning up crashes and they were putting out fires. some of these were smoldering for hours. when we arrived here at 1:00 this morning and drove around
8:07am
the mission district. we didn't see any broken windows on mission and valencia. so it appears that most of the damage overnight was limited -- was limited to those burned up dumpsters and news racks. 16th and mission. cleaner right now than it probable blip is on any given day. dpw has done a lot of work cleaning up that mess. live in san francisco, allie rasmus, ktvu channel 2 news. 8:07. the city of san francisco now preparing that victory parade for the giants. parade will be this wednesday, on halloween, just like in 2010, the ticker tape parade begins at the foot of market street, it will head to civic center plaza. ktvu will have full coverage for you, including the best ways to get out there since last night, the roads, buses, the b.a.r.t. platforms, they were all packed. we have complete coverage of the world series on our channel 2 website. just go to ktvu.com and click
